I see quotes shared with the best of intentions by beautiful, spiritual people celebrating being weird. Don't label yourself as weird! You are a free, creative, unique individual who expresses themselves vividly.
This is just a small example to show when you watch the words you use, you become more conscious of how they make you feel - and your feelings are your guidance system.
The more you practice taking note of words, you will avoid those with even the slightest hint of negativity, and this is how you're able to choose more positive thoughts, which lead to a happier life.
As soon as you use labels you're making a judgment. Our eyes make instant visual appraisals based on years of conditioning, but when we can filter those through kind thoughts, we make ourselves feel better.
Making yourself feel better is always your number 1 goal.
When you do what is best for you, you reinforce your feelings of self-worth, so you can love yourself unconditionally. This is the essential foundation for you to create a life that reflects love and harmony back to you.
Being critical and judging distances you from others - which is where peace is lost.
When you let go of labels, you allow yourself to look for similarities - which is where peace is found.
"If we judge others, it is because we are judging something in ourselves of which we are unaware." ~ John A. Sandford
"Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see. Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere. But if you listen to the sound of your own voice, you can rise above doubt and judgment. And you can see forever." ~ Nancy Kerrigan
